Fight or Flight by Jamie Canosa - Excerpt + Giveaway


Be smart.
Keep your head down.
And look out for number one.

These are the rules Jay has lived by for the past two years. The rules of surviving life on the streets. But when Em comes bursting into his life, in all of her disastrous glory, the rules go right out the window.

Flee what’s been left behind 
And never look back.

Em’s plan was simple. Though, it was easier said than done. The city streets are dangerous and unforgiving to a new arrival. Especially, a seventeen year old girl who’s never known anything but life in the suburbs. Sometimes, however, what’s lurking behind those white picket fences can be more frightening than any dark alley.

Both of them made the same decision when life got overwhelming—to run from their demons. Brought together by fate or circumstance, Em and Jay find the kind of love neither of them ever expected. But when those demons come back to haunt them and their love is on the line, which instincts will they choose to follow this time . . .
Fight or Flight? 

*Warning: This story includes mature language and themes, and is intended for mature audiences.


When her tiny hands had explored his body . . . Christ, he didn’t think he’d ever be the same again. And when she found his scars. He wished she never had to see those. That he could keep that ugliness hidden from her forever. She already had enough ugly in her life, he didn’t need to add to it. But she hadn’t shied away. Hadn’t demanded an explanation. Hadn’t pitied him. She’d just touched him—and more than just his skin. She’d touched his soul last night when she’d traced each one as though she were trying to heal it. If anyone could heal his scars, it was Em.

Jamie Canosa is a full time author of YA literature, which she absolutely loves. When she’s not writing or spending time with her family, she can usually be found with her nose in a book.
